German term or phrase: Peitschenshalter
Anyone know what this is?
Googling whip/bullwhip/whiplash switch or sensor taught me a lot about how to claim for neck injuries sustained in fender benders but not much else ;-))

Ein Sensor (z.B. Peitschenschalter) wird verwendet, wenn z.B. die Positionsmeldung des Roboters auch bei ausgeschalteter Robotersteuerung in einer übergeordneten Steuerung benötigt wird.

The text originates from a programmer's guide for a robot system.

English translation:rod-mounted, arm-mounted, stem-mounted
Explanation:
i.e. a Schalter mounted on a Peitsche, as in Gurt(schloß)peitsche (seat belts).

Just guessing.
